Rocket Brewery: Meet the Brewer
Wednesday 28th June 2017 / From 7.30pm / £15 / Tickets

On Wednesday 28th June the guys from, Copenhagen based, Rocket Brewery are flying into Kosmonaut for a Meet the Brewer and Q&A event. Rocket Brewery mainly focus on funky and sour beers. Brettanomyces is their House yeast and it puts a distinctive touch to all their products. The brewery setup is low-tech therefore lots of the production is very “hands on”, and local ingredients are used as much as possible. Places at the event will be very limited and the £15 ticket will include the tasting of 5 beers along with paired snacks and a boat load of knowledge imparted by the brewers.

Black Lodge Brewery, Ply


Black Lodge: Tap Takeover w/brewers in attendance
Saturday 24th June 2017 / From Noon / FREE ENTRY

Liverpool based brewing maestros, Black Lodge, will be taking over the PLY taps for one day only as part of Manchester Beer Week. Black Lodge was set up by a dedicated and creative team of experienced brewers. With creativity in mind, they manage to brew experimental beers which usually equate to small batch and one off beers. These are usually influenced by people and the environment around it. There will be 6 lines of beer along with paired pizza specials and the guys from Black Lodge will also be over to chat about their beer.
